Replica of Hangzhou
In Hangzhou, China is a Replica of the Eiffel Tower 108 meters high. It is in the center of a currently bushy area located in the city. The idea for the promoters was to make a sort of park of the main monuments of the world. He had planned Mount Rushmore, the White House, and so on. Only the Eiffel Tower was actually built in 2007, but the rest of the project is abandoned, leaving it alone, in the middle of nowhere. The Chinese hope that it will be quickly resumed.
This tower is 108 meters high (354 feet) and is on the 1:3rd. It is made of steel for a weight of around 1,000 tons. Many couples come there, sometimes hundreds of kilometers, to get their picture taken in front of them, Paris being in their eyes the capital of romanticism.
Replica of Macao
This Eiffel Tower is one of the rare presented here not yet realized during the writing of these lines, it is supposed to be in service in the 2nd quarter of 2016. It is part of a complex named "The Parisian Macao" in Cotai Strip. As the style is French, this tower will serve as the figurehead of the complex. It is at a scale of 1: 2, 150m high. It will host a restaurant on the 3rd floor. If the project respects the computer image it will be perfect, but the actual realization will have to be checked to make sure that it corresponds to the project.
A curiosity: The first floor of the tower will be connected to the shopping center by a covered tunnel, allowing visitors to go from the monument to the shops without going outside.
Replica of Shandong
China has several copies of the Eiffel Tower, it symbolizes for them the romanticism. Shandong Province has placed one in public space, at the top of a few steps. It was meant to bring more tourists to the area.
Aesthetically this tower is not badly made but nothing more. For example each floor marks a break in the curve of the tower, while the original tower is only a single curve. The first floor has a curious roof too, it does not exist on the real tower. When there is a little something that is disturbing to the pillars. This is probably because the decorative bow goes down to the ground while on the Parisian tower, it stops in contact with the pillars.
Replica of Shangai
This Replica of the Eiffel Tower is very pretty, it is located in Shanghai, in the city center, in front of a shopping center. It has a purpose to be decorative, it adorns a carousel of wooden horses. For the Chinese, Paris is a very romantic place, which explains why there are many references to this city in China.
Replica of Shenyang
It is in Shenyang that this copy is 30m high. Its golden color is what is most original about it, because otherwise it must be recognized that it is rather successful, without major flaws. It is on a small black base that highlights the effects.
Replica of Shenzen
The city of Shenzen, China, has built in a park a beautiful Eiffel Tower perfectly reproduced. It must be said that it is in an amusement park reproducing the main monuments of the world, a park as there are several in the world. It's called "Window of the Word". This tower is very big, it is 100m high, a scale of 1: 3 th.
This tower is very well reproduced, as said above. We do not detect, with the naked eye, of aesthetic problem compared to the real Eiffel tower.
Replica of Suzhou
China has various copies of the Eiffel Tower, most of them very resembling. But it has only a vague resemblance to the original, it is the Dong Wu Tower in Suzhou. It has some similarities as the Parisian tower: It is a slender pyramid with a slight curvature, it has a fairly massive floor equivalent to the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, and a 2nd floor similar to the 3rd floor. It has telecommunication antennas, too. In addition, its general architecture is similar to the Eiffel Tower. On the other hand, it differs by the general plan, the 4 pillars are truncated and when they join the floor, it takes an octagonal shape. The third floor, too, is circular instead of square. Note that the lighting was made by a Frenchman.
We are not in the presence of a real copy but rather of a tour of inspiration "eiffeic".
